Reinette Simirenko Apple


Reinette Simirenko Apple

Winter. Ukraine, before 1895. May have originated on the farm of Platon Simirenko in the Ukraine although some say it’s just a synonym for a fine old 19th-century New Jersey apple Wood’s Greening.

Became an instant favorite the day we first sampled it at the Fedco warehouse—landed straight into one taster’s all-time top five.

Medium-sized round waxy dotted grass-green fruit, often with a brownish-orange or pink blush. Greenish-yellow tender crisp fine-grained subacid flesh makes excellent eating. “Sweet, wine-like tangy flavor,” according to the Classical Fruits catalog. Sort of a Granny Smith for the North. Ripens where Grannies do not.

Stores well. Blooms late. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
